Planning My Own Wedding: Our Wedding Theme

Glen and I are having a lot of fun planning our wedding! One of the things we had discussed before getting engaged is our wedding colour scheme. Now that we have begun giving out our Save The Dates, a lot of our guests have already seen a glimpse of what to expect, so we can finally reveal what we’re doing.

This is the Save The Date that we designed together. I came up with the colour palette and Glen put his Photoshop skills to the test. We are very excited about the fonts and the deer and tree design.


I have been looking at “Pink and Gold” colour palettes on Pinterest and we have settled on the exact colours we would like to use: Blush, Rose and Champagne. It took a little while for Glen to accept the fact that pink can be done very well and it doesn’t have to look girly, but he is very much on board and he loves it!

The Deer

Glen and I both love God and there is a Scripture that means a lot to both of us:


So, we are incorporating deer into our decor and stationary. This represents our love for God and our passion for serving Him. We both also think that deer are super pretty and will fit into our overall theme.

The overall theme

We are going with a woodlands theme. So we are looking for a venue that reflects this (and is suitable for Autumn weather) and the overall look will be a mix of pretty and rustic. Think “lace and burlap” taken to another level (we won’t have any lace or burlap at all, but that is one example of how pretty and rustic can look beautiful together). We have some very cool ideas of how we can bring together our theme, colour scheme and decor ideas and I can’t wait to share them!

Next week: We have had our engagement shoot and I would love to share some of the photos along with some tips on how to plan a photo shoot that is a little bit quirky and interesting.
